Coach Marcelino Garcia says Villarreal were fortunate.

“Until the referee finishes the match you can score or you can concede. Today we were fortunate and got a really good result. We will see if it’s (the result) enough or not, but we are very proud of the team’s game, of their work and I think the result is fair,” he said.
